I was extremely shocked when I received a message from LynnS of Woodridge on my Blotanical plot that she was unable to leave a comment on my posts! LynnS, thank you so much for sounding the alarm! Oh dear, oh dear. I wonder how many others have encountered the same problem with my blog?
I did a check and found that indeed all the comments came from users with Blogger IDs only. How come no comments from wordpress, or other OpenID users??? In fact I have already programmed my comment settings to enable ‘Registered Users-includes OpenID’ to comment. I thought it means that people with Wordpress and any OpenID can comment. When I ‘tested’ it, I found out that I myself can’t even comment on my own post under OpenID! What is happening?????
So now I have enabled my comments settings to the 1st option i.e. to allow ‘Anyone-includes Anonymous Users’ to comment. Please inform me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or message on my blotanical plot if you are still unable to make any comments on my post. I am not sure whether I have solved my problem. I prefer that people do not comment under 'Anonymous Users' because I do not know who they are and cannot visit them back.
Is there a better way to deal with this?

I have decided to play along for the fun of it all. I have not done any post under My Nice Garden blog yet but I have already started one on my Klang City Daily Photo blog. This is the blog I post a picture a day about Klang in particular and Malaysia in general. Do visit when you have time. It'll be great if you can vote for me.
